Ditty Bag & Boxy Pouch.

The other day I made this ditty bag. I'd been meaning to make myself a new make-up bag. I had won $10 to MichellePatterns and used it to purchase the pattern. This is size medium. It's cute but I decided I'm going to give it to my teenager daughter for her own make-up.. or nail polish, or something.

Then yesterday I decided to make a boxy bag for myself. I'm always looking for ways to use my scraps and this ended up being the perfect project for that. I pieced a bunch of scraps together and then free-motion quilted the panels and used those quilted panels as my exterior fabric pieces.

I really love how this came out!

I loved the bag so much I decided I'm just going to make a bunch of them out of scraps. Maybe to sell or maybe for Christmas gifts. I don't know. We'll see. But here are two more scrap quilted panels ready to be turned into a boxy bag :)

Sewing is really difficult lately. My big belly gets in the way and my back hurts. Only 16 days until my due date but it doesn't seem like the baby has any intentions of coming on time. Two of my three kids went past their due dates and one was born right on her due date so I feel like this one will be late too. I am hoping she decides to come a little early since the week of my due date and the week after we are sooooo busy with school starting and all the open houses and orientations for the kids. I don't want to be in the hospital and have to miss any of that. My husband will go, of course, but I don't want to miss it myself.
